Civil war between the Republic and the Separatists rages across
the galaxy, nowhere is the fighting more fierce than on the
swamp world of Drongar, where a beleaguered mobile hospital
unit wages a never-ending war of its own...
with a group of surgeons whose job it is to patch together
those that simply want to blow each other apart,
surgeon who covers his despair with wisecracks; another who
faces death and misery head-on, venting his emotions through
beautiful music... A nurse with her heart in her work and
her eye on a doctor... A Jedi Padawan on a healing mission
without her Master. These are the core members of a tiny mud
unit serving the world of Drongar, where battle rages over
the control of a priceless native plant and an endless line
of medlifters brings in the wounded and dying - mostly clone
troopers, but also soldiers of all species.
the healers work desperately to save lives, others plot secretly
to profit from the war - either by dealing on the black market
or by manipulating the events of the war itself. In the end,
though, all will face individual tests, and only those of
compassionate hearts and staunch spirits can hope to survive
to fight another day.
loved the angle this book took. And to be honest this could
have worked in almost any war based setting. The fact that
it just happens to be set in the Star Wars universe
is neither here nor there.
that could be the sticking point for some fans (although not
me, I hasten to add). I can see the issue that some will take
with this book: What's the point of setting this in the Star
Wars universe when it could so easily be Star Trek,
Battlestar Galactica, or even an earth bound story if
you change the details slightly?
if you are looking for a new angle on the Star Wars universe,
then this could well satisfy that hunger.
